The First Lamborghini Countach LP500 S

The First Lamborghini Countach LP500 S

Getting a first-edition book is tremendous, but getting your hands on the very first Lamborghini LP500 S ever made is something else altogether. The LP500 S marks the third version of the famous Countach supercar. It was built between 1982 and 1984, and a mere 321 examples were ever made. The LP500 S is significant because it received a new front spoiler, bigger fenders, and a new rear end. The most important change was the more potent 4.8-liter V12 in the mid-engine compartment. Power jumped to 375 horses and 308 lb-ft. of twist. This car is white over red leather and only one of five with the special 5L badge. It was the same car that debuted at the 1982 Geneva Motor Show. The odometer shows a surprising 41,000 miles, most of which were put there by its famous owner, Carlos Cavazo, the lead guitarist of Quiet Riot who owned it for 35 years. The price stands at $785,000, which seems like a bargain given its history.
